The table below summarizes time usage for the telescope starting in FY 2014. The "engineering and closure" time is the percentage of nights scheduled; the weather and technical time lost is percentage of all hours reported. Technical time lost includes off-site problems with internet connectivity when observing remotely.
|FISCAL YEAR||Eng/Closed time % nights||Percent of science time lost|
The figure below summarizes over-subscription rates for NOIRLab (formerly NOAO) and Brazil (Chile to be added). The over-subscription is the ratio of new requests to available nights (after subtracting prior commitments such as surveys).
